VERNON E SWINDLER 28A I M m HIS ATTORNEYS United States Patent 3,193,159 DISPENSER FOR COMMINUTED MATERIAL AND THE LIKE Vernon E. Swindler, Prehle County, Ohio (RR. 1, Box 133, West Alexandria, Ohio) Filed Feb. 24, 1964, Ser. No. 346,845 8 Claims. (Cl. 222-336) This invention relates to a dispenser for comminuted material and the like.

One of the features of this invention is the provision of a dispenser unit for comminuted material which can be readily attached to a supply container, such as a bottle and the like, to dispense the comminuted material from such container or bottle.

Another feature of this invention is to provide a dispensing unit of the character described above which can be attached to an upwardly directed open end of said supply container which then can be inverted without the discharge of comminuted material unless a reciprocable plunger is reciprocated to cause such unit to dispense one or more measured quantities of comminuted material from said container.

. Another feature of this invention is the provision of a dispenser unit of the character described above which has a supply container receiving wall connected to a comminuted material supply outlet in said unit which connects the supply container to a comminuted material supply outlet in said unit, said unit also having a comminuted material dispensing spout for dispensing measured comminuted material to a receiving receptacle, said unit also having an outwardly biased plunger reciprocable between an outward position and an inward position to cause transfer ,of measured quantities of comminuted material from said outlet in said unit to said dispensing spout.

Another feature of this invention includes a dispensing unit of the above character which has an upper member and a lower member, such members being secured together by a dovetailing action.

Another feature of this invention includes a dispensing unit of the general character above described which can be removably attached to a supporting wall so that the unit can be removed from such supporting wall, be inverted and secured to an upwardly directed open end of the supply container, thereafter the dispensing unit and attached supply container being returnable for support on said supporting wall for dispensing measured quantities of comminuted material from such wall supported position.

This invention may be used to dispense various types of comminuted material, such as instant coffee, powi dered material and the like, with such material being dispensed directly from the opened mouth of the original bottle and the like in which the material is sold at retail.

Certain words, indicating direction, relative position etc, are used herein for brevity and clearness of description. However, it is to be understood that such words are used in connection with the positions shown in the drawings, and that the actual positions of the parts may vary when in use, etc.

According to this invention a comminuted material dispensing unit 24 is provided to receive the open end or mouth of a supply bottle 22, which may contain any comminuted material, such as instant coffee, and the like.

The dispensing unit may include the bottle engaging upper member 24 and the plunger and discharge lower member 26.

The lower member 26 is horizontally slidable with respect to the upper member 24 along the dovetail joints 28 for assembly purposes, and also for repair service, or cleaning purposes or the like. If desired, the members 24 and 26 after being properly assembled, may be locked together by any suitable means, such as by screws 30, or the like.

The lower member 26 may include a main disc-like member 32, which has a circumference 34 or outer wall 34. The disc-like member 32 has a platform 36, which is connected to the disc 32 by the dovetail flanges 38, which are to form the dovetail joints 28 and are to dovetail into the dovetail flanges 0 of the upper member 24, later to be described.

The platform 36 has a plunger receiving groove 42, which receives the dispensing plunger 44. The plunger 44 can be moved in and out of the groove 42 by the user to dispense a measured quantity of comminuted material from the bottle 22. The measured quantity, which may be equal to a teaspoonful, is discharged through opening or spout 46 into a receptacle, such as a coffee cup, a coffee pot, or any other receptacle placed under the spout 46 to receive the comminuted material being dispensed by this apparatus.

The dispensing plunger 44 may be of rectangular cross section if desired, and may have an arched or semi-circular wall 48 at one end and a finger receiving indentation 54 at the other end. The plunger 44 has a downwardly directed cavity 52 which receives the compression spring 54, which biases or returns the plunger 44 outwardly from the member 26. The user can push the plunger 44 inward by pressing the end of the plunger, and the plunger is returned to its outward position by spring 54. One end of the spring 54 is received by the leftwardly open cup 56, which extends upwardly from the bottom wall 58 of the member 26. The other end of the spring 54 is received in the small rightwardly open cavity 60.

The plunger 44 also has a vertical cylindrical measuring opening 62 which is aligned with the opening or discharge outlet 64 of the upper member 24, when the plunger is in the outward or leftward position of FIGURE 1, and is aligned with the discharge opening or spout 46 of the member 26, when the plunger is pushed inward to its discharging position with the opening 62 over the spent 45. The measured comminuted material is thus received in measured quantity in the measuring opening or cavity 62 from the supply outlet 64 and is transferred to the dispensing spout 46 from which it is dischargedin measured quantity into the receiving receptacle.

The upper member 24 has a cylindrical bottle mouth receiving wall 66 which has its inner surface threadedto receive the threads of the mouth of a supply bottle or container 22, for example. The threads of the bottle are the threads which receive the usual bottle cover Whichhas, beenremoved so the wall 66 of the member 24 may be secured to the mouth of the bottle;

The member 24 also-has a bottom wall 68,-w hich has a downwardly slanting surface 70, which'may be in the form of a truncated inverted cone extending from the bottom of the wall 66 to the top of the opening 64.. Therefore, the. powdered coifeeor the. like from the bottle, 22 is fed to the supply outlet 64 of member 24 and then. directly into the cylindrical transfer opening 6230f the plunger 44, when the plunger 44 is in its leftward position.

of FIGURE 1, so that the cavity or, cylindrical, transfer. opening 62 of the plunger is completely filled with the. powdered coffee-or other comminuted material,

When the plunger 44 is pushed rightwardly, to its fullrightward position, the contents of the cavity or slot-62 are transferred from the position under the supply outlet 64 to a position over the spout and the dischargev 46. f At the same time the supply outlet 64 is closed by the."

In assembling the dispensing unit of FIGURES 1 to 13, the plunger'44is placed in-the groove 42 ofthe member 26, with the spring 54 in cavity 52. The spring .514 may be assembled so that one. end of the spring is in the receiving cavity 56, and the other end of the spring 54 is in the receiving cavity 60. The member 26 is then im terlocked with the member 24 by inserting the dovetailing flanges 38- of the member 26; into-the dovetailing.

flanges 40- of themember 24.' These members '24. and 26 may then be moved relatively to each other, until their outer cylindrical surfaces 34 and 67 are aligned, as in FIGURE 1. They may, then be secured. together, if desired, by some attaching means, such asscrews 30, tohold the members 24 and 26 from relative movement with respectto each other.

When his desired to attach the unit 20 to a bottle 22, the bottle-22 has its cover removed, while the bottle is held with its mouth. upward. The unit.,20 is then in; verted, so, that thefcylindrical wall 66.is downwardly directed, and then the unit 20 may be threaded over the threads of the bottle 22,'unti1 the unit 20-and the bottle 22 are securely attached together.

FIGURES 14 to 16show a'dispensing unit 20A which is adapted to be placed on a vertical wall, so that the unit is held on such vertical wall for dispensing therefrom. The dispensing unit of these FIGURES 14-16 may includean upper member 24A and a lower member 26A substantially identical with. the members 24 and 26 of the unit 2 0- heretofore described. in connection with FIGURES l through 13. The members 24A ad 26A may be substantially the same in construction and operation as' heretoforedescribed in connection with members 24 and 26. However, the member 24A may-be formed integrally with a flat wall attaching support member 78, which may have a pair of side'flanges 80 and a floor 82 connecting the. members .78 and 80. to the. member 24A.

A few of the members previously described. areindicated;

in FIGURES. 14 through 16 with the sufiix A attached thereto. merely to identify the .corresponding'parts. It is understood-howeverthat. the operation of the member. as-

shown in" FIGURES 14...through' 16 is essentially the same as that previously described inconnectionwith the previous FIGURES 1-l3.' v

The openings 84 are made in the, fiat plate 78 so that they are relatively large at their lower ends to. permitthe screw heads 'of the screws in the supporting wall to pass through said openings at said relatively large lower ends for detachment of the flat plate 78 fromthe supporting wall. The openings 84 are relatively small at their'upper ends to receive said screwsbut to prevent said screw heads from passing through said openings; at said upper ends so that said, plate 78is attached to said supporting .wall.

The plate 78 is detachedfrom the supporting wall by sliding the plate 78 upward s-o the plate/78 can then be pulled forward with the lower ends of openings 84 passing the screw heads. The plate 78 can be attached: to the supportingwall by moving the'plate 78* backwardly to pass the lowerends of the openings 84 past the screw. heads and then sliding the plate 78 downwardly.

' To attach a bottle 22A to the unit 20A, the unit 20A is disengaged from itssupporting wall by disengaging the openings. 84 from the screw heads. The unit 20A is then inverted and threaded over the open mouth of the bottle 22A which bottle is held with its mouth end up. After they have been secured together they maybe placed on the wallfor use. i

The upper and lower members 24 and 26 may be made 7 of anysuitable material, such as of metal or plastic ma- When it is, desired to dispense a measured quantity of instant coffee or the like, the bottle 22 and the unit 20 are held with the discharge'opening or spout 46directed downwardly. Then the plunger 44 is pushed. inwardly until the cylindrical. opening 62 of the plunger 44 is aligned with the discharge-spout 46 of thefmember 26.

A measured quantity of comminuted material which was held in the cavity 62 is' then discharged downwardly through the spout 46 into the'receiving receptacle which a is held under'the opening 46.: If desired, severalmeasured quantities may be dispensed, merely by allowingthe plunger 44 to. be returned outwardly by the spring 54;

and then pushing the plunger. 44 inward a-second time. I

terials, as. desired,

The assembl d unit20 and bottle'22 are shown in reduced scale and in inverted position, ready fordispensing the comminuted material in FIGURE 17. The assembled unit 20A and. bottle 22A are also in inverted position, as

FIGURE 18 shows another embodiment whereinthe openings '64 of FIGURE 2 is. changed, into; the shape of 64A, and the opening 46 is changed into the shapeof 46A. An openi'ng 625A is shown, which corresponds to the opening 62 of plunger 50 but is shown in a partially pushed in position; The openings64A and'46A are spaced suificiently far apart, so thatfa continuously opened passageway cannot be; formed between ithe. bottle 22 and the discharge'opening 46. by. an accidental partial movement of the plunger 50 inward. It is to be seen. that if the opening 62A is moved inward sufiiciently, to partially connect with the opening46A,. asshown in dotted lines in FIGURE 18, then the opening 62A of the plunger 50 would j not 'be aligned with the. opening 64A of the wall 68. Therefore there could never a continuous flow of powdered coffee or the like because of an accidental parallel'pushingin of the plunger 50.
